A perspective I hadn't considered. People in the UK... any thoughts?
Hafta say, though... the author's entire argument hinges on one point: in Scotland, "free tuition resulted in lower grants used for housing and students in need had to rely more on loans." Does free tuition HAVE to result in lower living expense grants for students in need? Or is that something that can be addressed?
Yesterday I realised something, I spend ~660 hours (roughly equivalent to the month of February) commuting every year. And, surprisingly, I quite enjoy it.
In a rather meta way, I wrote a blog post about it on my commute. Thoughts & feedback always welcome.
Someone was thinking!
I am impressed by the current Pope. (no that's not what this is about) It was hard to understand his speech at the US Congress. After all it's his 2nd, (or 3rd or 4th) language, so I decided to read the transcript of the UN speech. Worth reading, but also, I was wondering what the 1st language of the transcriber might be!? Or nuclear weapons became nothing more than distractions while I was sleeping?! "....... proliferation of arms, especially weapons of mass distraction, such as nuclear weapons. "
This is from the only transcript I can find at PBS same as TIME :)
I was reading this old article on the South China Sea Issue, which I was not very aware of. It's worth reading, but what really wowed me was the format.
hint: don't forget to scroll down....it's not just a pretty picture.
